We live in a world that seems to constantly change. I remember (without giving my age) the phone booth, banking before ATMʼs, and blind dates versus online dating services just to name a few.
With all the changes, many times it is difﬁcult to step into tomorrow knowing there will be something else to learn, something else to eliminate and something else to add to our business terminology.
Is your business ready for change? I like the three Rʼs of change;
Renew – Like a subscription to a service, you need to renew your commitment to looking at your goals and making the course changes necessary to achieving them.
Refresh – How fresh is your life? You don’t want to become stagnant. Life is exciting and it is time to put passion back in your business and personal life.
Retrain – Have you been in your industry 10 years or longer? Be sure it is not one year’s experience repeated nine times. In other words, every year you must retrain yourself to utilize and be aware of trends.
Some things will never go out of style, like customer service, customer relationships and customer courtesies. Prepare yourself for this ever-changing world by being renewed, refreshed and retrained.
